Minimum Number of Followers in Congregational Prayer

Q: I would like to know what is the minimum number of Muqtadis necessary for a Jamaat (apart from Jumaat which requires 3 Muqtadis apart from the Imam)? Kindly answer in light of Hanafi school of thought.

A: Haamidaw wa Musalliyaa

A Jamaat (i.e. congregational prayer) can take place with one muqtadi.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
